Poet Profound

The cascading stream leaping in swirling ebullience
Through dancing shadows of swaying trees entranced
The spectral dew drops draping the glinting grass tips
Weave lattice of splendor on the meadow bejeweled
The drizzling dust on moonbeam in blue satin night
Adorns the pearl laced waves...Read More

No title for it
I believe love is the only possession
that we are allowed to leave Earth with, 
so a hoarder I have become. 

There is
bliss in boxes built like Babel 
without the dialect changing for its different forms
to converse to continue construction.

With the...Read More

Dancing on the edge of enlightenment;
only to fall in the gorge again.
Its deepness enfolds the lure of Mara.
The echo of her voice from every rock chimes.

I sought her;
Following the trickle of the stream.
She asked me to go deeper

The crown of the underdog
The crown of the underdog

In the oblivion of failure
A nameless person takes your place
Your face loses a name
Your eyes too ashamed to look up
You never looked out
Now you introspect
A new idea is conceived
A dream is birthed
Another climb begins
Deserted and lost
Strength...Read More

"Reality is something you rise above."  - Liza Minelli

Today is nothing less than your blank canvas
So splash those colors never meant to harness
Reality is just a bland and neutral tone
You’re meant to dare and soar alone
So spread your wings...Read More

Wisely Wise
On the mountain lived a wise person

Nobody called them a witch

Or threatened them with fire at the stake

They knew about plants and herbs

About what to eat and what not

And they could heal with plants

Making food with fruit and vegetables

Including meat...Read More

Of a fringed existence upon a solitary majestic beholden expanse,
Saguaro forest brims an Arizonan desert thirty deep in noble stance,
1000 foot profound ampleness their protrusive inward succulence,
E'er so oft a filtered beauty blossoms unscathed of shielded intense,
Thirty growing crowns shadow...Read More

A treochair poem  (not on list, pls forgive)

A snow-capped mountain,
Has a regal summit to boast.

So serene,
The power of God is revealed,
In so so white-frosted sheen.

The moon shines,
Dancing on the snowy caps.
Making shadows in the night....Read More

The Summit
When you’ve been to the top of the mountain

Great Escape

Gone beneath the surging waves of squally sea of sorrow
Remains of the castle I built with silver sands of dream,
Emerging out of the debris I face the plateau of life fallow.
Aspirations die hard, so I grow wings to fly on...Read More

Infinity Found
Infinity Found

If joy could just be measured in a flower,
And happiness's worth by breadth of smile,
Or all life's pleasures fit into an hour,
What of my journey fits into a mile?

I traveled far upon an ocean deep,
Then trod the land where...Read More

Sacred summit with secret side.  
An ancient site with earthen tombs 
held ritual urns with dead remains
of status people long deceased.

A Bronze Age burial ground untouched
now falls victim to modern man
who cuts his way through the burried.

To quarry precious...Read More

Blood Clot and Boycott and More
Blood Clot and Boycott

Rather than crossing lines and boycott,
We did have a drink  called blood clot,
And then hardened;
From jail pardoned;
After we would finish it, hit the spot.

Far above skies,
Destined never to plummet,
Leaving earth's ties,
You've reached your summit.

As surely as I see you there,
You kept alive the flame;
Now in its sudden glare-
The whole world knows your name.

Sitting happy and proud,
In your beautiful clothes,
You wave to the crowd;
Someone...Read More

Decidedlly NOT the kind of hot dog you'd ever want to eat

Herr Schneider and his Heidi 
Lived a staid and peaceful life
In a suburb prim and tidy,
Free of rancour, free of strife.

One blessing only Heaven denied
To this prosperous married pair
No infant’s laugh or baby’s cry
E’er pierced their household’s air.

As life’s observers,...Read More

Where Green Forests Wrap Desirous Land

Across the midnight divide in a shroud,
this soul sails upon glistening gold wings.
There with vanity and what pride allowed,
my seeking heart wanders along and sings.

Beneath snow covered summit my joy shouts
where green forests wrap the...Read More

Premium Member GETTING OLD

how suddenly the good times
come to a screeching halt
in our youth we were wild
nothing stopping us
crossing boundaries
pushing limits
climbed the summit
we were crazy just insane
how we thought fun times
would last forever
never did we think
we would get old
riding on magic carpets

On the days I seem less humble,
Should I stumble into greatness
Or I drown in human vomit
By the light of critic’s benchmark.
Let me give self-love a tumble,
Never welcoming false witness,
Think man’s praise, my fault a summit,
Oceans’ trenches in my ballpark.

Liberate The Soul

The formidable mountain of life
needs to be climbed, the summit reached
on the track undefined, direction unknown.

in His prescribed ordain you repose trust, 
faith will pave the path, open the door of dreams

Straw man
The ocean of untold, the universe of unforgiving,
Dare me to speak up without husk, bare and bold,
Without submitting to the summit, wild as a boar,  
The peak of power unchained, to the stars I’d soar.

Shine When It Is Your Time
H-ighly shine when it is your time, 
O-pen your mind to success;

N-ever put others down

I'm Just Getting Started

It was an uphill long climb, grueling for me,
up the precipitous slope called career,
unpredictably slippery and tenuously craggy,
I followed the winding contours with tenacity
that led me to the summit people called success
where the sky of aspiration seemed limitless.

It’s time now...Read More
